Posted 08 November 2013 - 07:11 PM

Just got back from picking up my new 2014 MXZ 800x.   Man these sleds are impressive!   Im coming off a 2012 Cat turbo which looked like it was designed and put together by a shop class for a project sled, man im so glad to be rid of that Piece of junk.

 

This new DOO is really nicely designed and put together, I will be pulling her apart to install my ice attack XT track, which the carton says 35lbs which is 2 pounds less then the original specs i got from camo.  This 1.22" track sure is nice...it actually measures taller then the stock ripsaw, and has very hard lugs, should hold up well.

 

Lots to do now installing all the goodies!

Congrats! I picked mine up today too, identical sled although I'm going a little lighter on the mods. 84 Phantoms, adjustable Doo riser, and some handguard extensions for now. Still deciding on whether I need a tunnel bag....Looks good, Enjoy!

Dan, give us a full comparo vs the cats construction when you get a chance. I even challenge the Yamaha fan boys to comment on doo build quality. IMO the doo is a very high end production piece.

Very nice ride.  You will like the LinQ tunnel bag; well work the money IMO.

Congrats!  I have a 14 600X orange - the more I look at it walking by it in the garage the more I like it.  Your picture does justice! 

 

Are you going to install the LED light too?  That thing is stupid bright!!!
